Thanks AJ :)
This is a quick read that brings out the world it’s set it. It’s steampunk, which I don’t think I’ve ever read a proper steampunk story before. I loved the creativity with the plot in the reasons behind why things happen, in other words the steampunk element. The plot line itself has been done before. The tension between the two main characters is palatable, but I their interactions had been flushed out more on the non-romancey parts. Those seemed stilted and awkward in ways they shouldn’t have been.
Overall, this was a good and quick read even though the writing was a bit immature for the pace of the short. Not bad immature just choppy in places and without proper pacing.
Oh, and if anyone is a fan of the show Sanctuary, you should read this. If only because it’s Magnus’ double from when she was much younger. Loved that aspect!
